We are seeing more left- and right-wing fanatics going on shooting sprees,...

Gotta take issue with this.

I'm having a hard time coming up with a "right-wing fanatic" who went on a shooting spree.

Do you have someone in particular in mind?

Why would I do that when I can vote for more and more ‘free stuff’ from the big Santa in Washington DC? If it was the right thing to do Obama would mandate that I do it with higher tax/penalties. The big Santa rewards and punishes.

BTW :the libs here in Maryland raised multiple taxes on me so it’s not ‘free’, nor did I get any ‘stuff’ from them.

Laz, who talks of intent to be intimate with various women, talking of morals?

I don’t know you personally, but the two ideas seem to be against each other.

Well, there's me. I'm a right winger and I totally perforated all those targets.

To be honest, only one that even comes close, comes to mind. And even in his case, there are many who would convincingly argue his was a left-wing cause.

I think I wasn't willing to devolve the argument to that set of points, I just wanted those who are left of center to be able to read this and maybe not get stuck on the name-and-blame-game, but instead skate past that point and get the larger -- and far more important -- message.

That's because there is absolutely no chance of this editorial escaping Free Republic and getting a larger circulation. That's awesome! You can predict what will happen like that!

Well then, we need to hit abuse and get this thing deleted. It's useless, after all!

"Therefore, we must look only to our own moral standing, and seek to improve that at every turn. If we become aligned with God's will, we can, in that way, do our little part. If we embrace God and morality, we will be more likely to vote for people who embrace the same things. We will be more likely to help our fellow man, when it is truly justified. We will be less likely to act out in a proactive act of violence. We will lessen the need for more and more oppressive laws."

Yep. This speaks to me, personally. The state of things has me pretty angry, but I'm trying to let God help me deal with that. I do believe I should vote my morals, but I can't be in God's will if I'm marinating in anger.

Oh, please, no sarcasm required. I guess, you expect members to spread the word about your magical cure-all. It might or might not happen, but consider the effectiveness of Christian proselytism: it carries basically the same message to the world for 2000 years, there are people who hear it and there always be people who ignore it. Unfortunately, the deaf group is Legions.

Wow, what an honor it is to have posted something that might actually HELP you....

.... I try to remember a few things: God's got this. I'll be okay, no matter what. I can always find joy, in any situation by simply acting in God's will. And how do I know I'm acting in God's will, and not mine? If I have no selfish motivations or seek no personal profit -- or any type -- in any outcome, in the choices and decisions I make.

good stuff Laz...but as you said, and *know*, we can only maintain our side of the street...

if everyone had the desire, or even the ability to control their basic instincts of life, we wouldnt need God in the first place...

as such, the stage is set for our basic instincts to always be in a collision course with other people and institutions...facts as old as man, and by Gods Grace that were codified a couple hundred yrs ago in the Constitution...the next day the rot continued and remains growing like a cancer, to where we are today...

I find the part before personal profit to be most admirable and likely to cause much joy in and around you. I am puzzled by your attitude about profit though. Doesn't G*d want you to be happy? Wouldn't doing His will be profitable?

It is! He does! But here's the very-fine distinction: If you seek to be of service to God, and your motivation is to feel better about yourself or get some form of profit, you still aren't QUITE in God's will. You are close, OH so close. You are at 359o. But if you just click over that one last degree, you will be entirely in God's will, and UNLIMITED power will flow through you.

Being at 359 degrees ain't bad. But that one extra degree makes a big difference.

READ THE FOLLOWING EXCERPT FROM THE DECLARATION OF INDEPENDENCE - WHO DOES THIS SOUND LIKE?

* He has refused his assent to laws, the most wholesome and necessary for the public good.

* He has made judges dependent on his will alone, for the tenure of their offices, and the amount and payment of their salaries.

* He has erected a multitude of new offices, and sent hither swarms of officers to harass our people, and eat out their substance.

* He {intends to keep} among us, in times of peace, standing armies without the consent of our legislature.

* He {intends to render} the military independent of and superior to civil power.

* He has combined with others to subject us to a jurisdiction foreign to our Constitution, and unacknowledged by our laws...

* For imposing Taxes on us without our Consent...

* For depriving us in many {future} cases, of the benefits of trial by jury...

* For ... abolishing our most valuable Laws and altering fundamentally the Forms of our Governments:

* He has excited domestic insurrections amongst us, and has endeavored to bring on the inhabitants of our frontiers, the merciless ... savages, whose known rule of warfare, is undistinguished destruction of all ages, sexes and conditions.

* In every stage of these oppressions we have petitioned for redress in the most humble terms: our repeated petitions have been answered only by repeated injury. A prince, whose character is thus marked by every act which may define a tyrant, is unfit to be the ruler of a free people.

* Nor have We been wanting in attentions to our ... brethren. We have warned them from time to time of attempts by their legislature to extend an unwarrantable jurisdiction over us. We have reminded them of the circumstances of our emigration and settlement here. We have appealed to their native justice and magnanimity, and we have conjured them by the ties of our common kindred to disavow these usurpations, which, would inevitably interrupt our connections and correspondence. They too have been deaf to the voice of justice and of consanguinity.

I, reluctantly, differ with my esteemed fellow Freeper, Laz.

It is naive to think that simply living a more moral life will result in victory over the Left (commies, socialists, gay causeniks, et al).

They will NEVER give up. When defeated, they will come right back again.

We will be in this struggle until death. Get used to it.

I submit that to overcome the Left:

1. Work to convince others that we are right and the Left is wrong. We are having some success in this.

2. When in power, DE-FUND the Left. They use unions, universities, civil service, grants, trial lawyers, and tax exempt foundations to make the rest supply them with a paycheck. They actually use our tax dollars to fight us and propagandize our children. They even fund environmental lawsuits which harm our economy with our tax dollars.

We can fix this. Imagine the impact of school vouchers on the teacher unions and what kids get taught in school. We need to fight to de-fund the Left at every opportunity. Without that funding, they are much weaker.

3. At the federal level, review all security clearances and find the enemy agents. We are riddled with them right now. Start with the counter-intel divisions of the FBI because that’s the FIRST place they try to infiltrate.

4. Audit the finances of every potential agent-of-influence including civil service and ALL pols. You will find questionable wealth from bribes.

3. We need more activists and not just on keyboards. In my personal experience, there is no better way to influence the outcomes of elections than to be a poll worker, Election Judge, or Poll Watcher. Without vote fraud, they lose at least 5% nationally and much more in certain precincts.

Laz, thanks for your contribution to our Cause.

Excellent essay, Laz. Thanks for putting it out there.

In the eternal war between the Takers and the Makers, the Takers will always outnumber the Makers.

Sometime, the Makers just need to remember those four magic words..”Get Off My Lawn.” And be willing to back it up at any cost.

Turning inward and remembering God and your faith, and how we got to be the Country we have been is essential for personal survival.

But society survival - as a whole - has been altered, possibly irrevocably, by the left over the decades.

They’ve opened Pandora’s box with the sexual revolution to destroy the morality of people; with no faith or morality basis (not allowed to talk about faith or morality in the public education anymore) - other than “feel-good” and “self-esteem” BS to counter the assault of unrestrained eroticism on young minds, you get sexual assaults, rape, molestation, out of wedlock pregnancies, etc.

With the feminist movement, they destroyed the harmony of the household and poisoned relationships between men and women;

They’ve used every technique possible to emasculate manhood and the authority of “Dad”, and promote their version of “the perfect man” - effeminate, crying at the drop of a dime, overly-sensitive and basically unable to take control of a situation as men have done in the past. Somewhere I have the late Colonel Jeff Cooper’s list of the things a man should be able to do. It’s something that all young men should be taught by their fathers - required reading as it were.

With the abortion movement, they’ve managed to convince mothers to ignore the maternal instinct- arguably one of the strongest instincts next to self-preservation - and to murder their own children and call it a “choice”. How many millions of souls have been slaughtered in THIS Holocaust?

With atheism, with the queer revolution, etc., etc., all the pop culture garbage that has become mainstreamed into the living rooms, headphones, and internet browsers all over the country.

1950s-style American neighborhoods are rare, if they still exist. Hell, we can’t even afford to raise the same size families as our folks did in the 1950s.

I used to drive through my old neighborhood on my way home from work sometimes. One route I drove took me through the rowhome section where I spent a large part part of my youth; there was a church on every other or third corner, no exaggeration - different denominations, but churches nonetheless. I remember Sundays, those places were filled, the bells would ring, and families would be attending services.

Those same churches - Lutheran, Catholic, Baptist, Methodist, a Jewish Synagogue, etc., - are closed up and boarded over now. The local gangsta thugs “tagged” them with graffiti in what looks like a final middle finger of disrespect.

It’s sad to see. I remember a different neighborhood. I also remember when the drug dealers came in from other neighborhoods they’d destroyed, and started in on our neighborhood youngsters; nobody killed them, nobody took them out, the police did nothing, and some of my friends died before the age of 21. People moved out, businesses moved out, and the neighborhood went to hell inside of ten years.

With the drug culture carefully marketed, packaged, handed down and turned into Cheech and Chong “Cool” from the 1960s onwards they’ve destroyed some of our best young minds, and crippled others. And still it continues. We can regulate, control, administer, govern, coerce, and intimidate everything and everyone else, but still the dope flows on.

The other side through stealth, through determination and hatred of all things American, and now through legislation have turned this country on its ear.

So, yes, turning inward to God can save ourselves and our own souls. But the soul of the country may be lost as a whole.

It came back a little bit, for a little while, after 9-11-2001. And within days, the left was moving to erase any shred of patriotism and togetherness the country was exhibiting. I remember watching it happen in front of my eyes - the parade of talking head “experts” coming on TV telling us not to jump to conclusions, this was not the time for flag-waving, etc., Darryl Worley wrote a song called “Have You Forgotten” shortly after that atrocity inflicted on us by Islam and Liberals.

In it, he states “...they took all the footage off our TV, said it was too disturbing for you and me...it’ll just breed anger, that’s what the experts say...”

He nailed it. It was coordinated and carefully orchestrated to erase an event that united the country - however briefly - because that unity threatened the agenda.

I don’t see us being repaired by anything less than a catastrophe and a major purging of the other side. The irony of it is, the other side is PUSHING for that catastrophe - which I truly believe will destroy them ultimately - and there are more than enough people on our side of the aisle who have had enough, who are ithching for a fight, and who are salivating at the thought of finally pushing BACK and not inclined to back off once unleashed.

Hope I’m wrong...But I don’t think so.

Sorry for the long rant.
